Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Martin Erat Gets the Call

Per Mike Vogel, Martin Erat draws back into the lineup and the Caps again turn to Philipp Grubauer in net as they face the Blue Jackets. Here are tonight's probable lines and defensive pairings:


21-84-8_medium

Brooks Laich - Mikhail Grabovski - Alex Ovechkin

16-19-20_medium
Eric Fehr - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

25-90-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Marcus Johansson - Joel Ward

10-83-43_medium

Martin Erat - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-58_medium

John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves Aaron Volpatti, Steve Oleksy and either Braden Holtby or Michal Neuvirth as a healthy scratch (with the other backing up Grubauer), and Jack Hillen the lone injured scratch.
